Over the Rainbow - Eric Clapton
                  chart by Phil Ford

|:E    C#m     |F#m    B      :|

E     C#m      G#m7           
  Somewhere      over the rainbow-
A        A7   E       C#m   
    way   up  high   
A   Am           E               C#m            
      there's a  land     that I heard of
F#m         B          E   B7
    once      in a lullaby

[Verse 2]-------------------------------------

E     C#m       G#m7          
  Somewhere       over the rainbow- 
A     A7             G#m    C#m 
        skies    are blue
A           Am         E           C#m     
    and the dreams        that you dare to dream
F#m        B       E      B7
    really do come true

[Chorus]==============================================
    E                                F#m7 
Someday I'll wish upon a star    and wake up  where the clouds are far 
  G#m             C#m              F#m        B
behind me
      E                               D#7
Where troubles melt like lemon drops  away above the chimney tops
       G#m7    C#m       F#m7    B
that's where      you'll find me

[Verse 3]---------------------------------------

A#m7b5    D#7   G#m7             
Some   -  where over the rainbow -

A   A7              E   E7
       blue   birds fly
A      Am               E               C#m        
       birds fly            over the rainbow, 
F#m               B         E         B7
why           Oh, why can't I?

About the artist behind Over The Rainbow:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
